DC Universe has announced it’s going free-to-play (F2P) with the next update. Both PC and PS3 players will have a choice of three levels of membership:
IGN made the announcement and says Sony Online will have the F2P version online for download in October.
In the meantime, superhero rival MMO Champions Online has introduced a new player-vs-player (PvP) mode called King of the Hill. The game centers in a zone called Vibora Bay and players vie for control of the mausoleum fountain as they fight one another in a no-holds-barred King of the Hill tourney.
Winning teams are those who hold the fountain for 7 minutes, but underdog contestants get stronger and stronger (through a Determination buff) as the minutes tick away.
